We will be training at Great Lakes Crossings AFTER the mall closes on Sunday

On Sunday evening, September 21, 2014, the Auburn Hills Police Department, in cooperation with The Taubman Company, will be hosting a training exercise on the property of Great Lakes Crossing Outlets, 4000 Baldwin Rd. Auburn Hills, MI 48326. The training exercise is a multijurisdictional exercise designed to simulate an active assailant incident.  The event is scheduled AFTER the mall closes for the day.

This training exercise is designed as a one day drill to test the response and preparedness of first responders as well as private sector partners in response to such a dynamic and tragic situation. The public can expect to see a large number of law enforcement agencies in the area.

During this training exercise Great Lakes Crossing Outlets will be closed with the exception of the following establishments:  AMC Theater, Bar Louie, Burlington Coat Factory, Miyako Japanese Steakhouse, and Toby Keith’s I love this Bar & Grill. Additionally, Great Lakes Crossing Dr. will be closed from approximately 5:30 PM to 10:00 pm.

Only authorized personnel will be allowed to attend or participate in the training. Due to the sensitive nature of the training, and for the safety of all, this training will not be open to the public for observation.

We are letting the public know that this is a training exercise, so not to unduly alarm anyone.
